Mazda has revealed a new MX-5 Miata Anniversary Edition at the New York International Auto Show. The sexy roadster was created to celebrate 25 years since the launch of the brand’s iconic MX-5, simply known as the “Mazda Roadster” in Japan.
More than 900,000 MX-5 units have been sold since its launch in 1989, setting a Guinness World Record for the best-selling two-seater open-top sports car.
The Anniversary Edition aims to reflect on those 25 years of heritage and fun shared with fans. It’ll be available only in Soul Red Metallic with either a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. Buyers can expect the utmost attention to detail in every part of the vehicle, like the A-pillars, door mirrors, off-white leather upholstery, hand-finished decorative panel, and more.
Mazda also revealed the new SKYACTIV-Chassis on which the future MX-5 models will be based. One major improvement will be a lower center of gravity and more than 100 kilograms of shaved weight.
We can’t wait! Be sure to check out the MX-5, new and old, at Steet Ponte Mazda!
